How to write a blog post about a conference? That’s the question I’m asking myself right now. Not an easy task, methinks, since although short, it was packed:
Two and a half days filled with interesting lectures, lively panel discussions and instructive workshops, with meeting colleagues and friends, some again, others for the first time (yes, that would be you, my dear Twitteros), with drinking coffee and water (and apple juice, when neither of the above was available), with lots of sunshine and music (go, Gayle Tufts!), with a Bavarian Evening hosted by my regional association), with social networking like there was no tomorrow (#bdue2012), and so much more!
My colleague, Fabio Said, made a great little video recap:
For me, the two greatest things were that this time, I was totally relaxed and able to just enjoy it all without any stress whatsoever (last time, three years ago, I was so nervous and excited, because it was my very first conference, and I had been a freelancer for only one year, and it was all so very new and overwhelming that it was very exhausting), and that I went there and back on my motorcycle, which was a fun trip in and of itself (and let me roam the halls of the Henry Ford Bau as my alter ego, the Fastest Translator in Town, on the last day)!
I hope everyone else who attended enjoyed it as much as I did! See you again next time in Berlin!
